Welcome to my randomness

This is a place where I collect the things that I <3. It’s a mashup of tech, culture, music, films, games and anything else that catches my attention. My name is Lance Weiler. I’m storytelling agnostic. I’ve written, designed, built, directed, and run various film, tv, gaming and immersive storytelling projects. I’m a columnist for Filmmaker Magazine, where I write about the impact of technology on entertainment. And for the last few years, I’ve been teaching a course at Columbia University on the art, craft & biz of storytelling in 21c.


Why Text of Light?

The name is a reference to a film by experimental filmmaker Stan Brakhage. “Text of Light” (1974) is a wonderful film by Brakhage, who during his forty year career made over 200 films of varying lengths.
